Discover New Places, People and Activities During Montgomery County’s Active Aging Week

Fitness classes are among the free, fun events offered during Montgomery County's Active Aging Week, which takes place the first week of October. Check out what’s happening and plan to participate in a group walk, Tai Chi, book discussion, line dance, card games, yoga, tech class, conversation, pickleball or something else!

Everyone is invited to the Active Aging Week kickoff event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at Brookside Gardens.The free event includes a stroll around the park and many activity demonstrations such as Zumba and Tai Chi. Food will be available for purchase.

There are dozens of other events happening throughout the week. For a list, visit the County’s senior site and click on “Senior Calendar” (in the left column).

More information is available here.


  1. Would have been nice to see this alert a week before the events instead of one day before. The county's trend of notification the day of, or the day before, events is common...and results in many people not being able to take advantage of the events because of lack of planning. Is there a common county wide calendar for events to which we can refer? If so, please publicize it. If not, organize one... make it easy on your residents.

  2. I completely agree with the abovecomment! Whoever is in charge of sending out these emails needs to do so weeks before, not days before the event.

  3. Thank you for reading the article and taking time to respond. The Paperless Airplane goes out every two to three weeks depending on the County news cycle. Information about Active Aging events began going out on multiple platforms several weeks ago.
    Here are links to some of the calendars:

  4. I live in Prince George's County and find the same problem.
